WebServer Monitor 1.0.7 Released
Category : Technology/WebServerMonitor107.txt
I've released WebServer Monitor version 1.0.7.
I've needed a way to quickly filter the log records by a visitor's IP address so that I can see how he has traversed through the web site. In order to do this, I've added a Navigation menu so that if you do a Command-Option-C, you can copy the log record's IP address to the Search Field, at which point the log records instantly shrink to show only those from the same IP address.
If you've sorted the columns by time, you can see how the visitor has come into the site, what pages he has looked at, for how long each page, and when did he leave.
Other items in the Navigation menu clears the Search Field (Command-Option-X), scrolls back to the currently selected log record (Command-T), and launches the referrer's web page (Command-R), which can also be done by double-clicking on the log record.
There's also the new "Check for Updates" menu item under the Help Menu that will bring you back to the WebServer Monitor web page, if I have a new release ready.
Actually, I'm thinking I could use the WebServer Monitor to be an Apache configurator, e.g., to set up WebDav, PHP, etc. Together with a log analysis tool, that's probably going to be the next improvements.
